Halloween Kills: new posters focus on three generations of Strode women

We’re still ten days away from the October 15th theatrical and Peacock streaming service release of Halloween Kills, but our review of the film is already here! You can check out the video review in the embed above, or CLICK HERE to read what our own JimmyO thought of the movie. In the meantime, the Universal marketing department has released a batch of four new posters to promote Halloween Kills. These posters focus on the three generations of Strode women that are featured in the film – Jamie Lee Curtis as franchise heroine Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen, and Andi Matichak as Karen’s daughter Allyson – and can be seen below.

David Gordon Green’s Halloween 2018 (watch it HERE) ignored all of the other Halloween movies except for John Carpenter’s original (which you can watch HERE). Directed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills is set on the same night as its predecessor.

Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.

Myers is going to be crossing paths with a lot of familiar faces in this one. In addition to the actors mentioned above we’re also getting Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam (a character from the original film), Dylan Arnold back as Allyson’s boyfriend / Lonnie’s son Cameron, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Jibrail Nantambu as Halloween 2018 scene stealer Julian, child actress Victoria Paige Watkins as a new character named Christy, and James Jude Courtney as Michael Myers. Original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle also has a one scene cameo.

Green, McBride, and Curtis also serve as executive producers on Halloween Kills alongside Couper Samuelson and John Carpenter. Jason Blum produced with Malek Akkad.
